Just thinking about Part P implications.
If someone rewires their house, from dodgy rubber
wiring etc. to fully regs-compliant wiring, but doesn't
get BC approval, and it is subsequently noticed (e.g.

It won't happen. BCO's want the quiet life and are not going to take
action over something that is not obviously u/s, and even if they
did my (limited) experience is that magistrates take a pretty dim
view of those who institute prosecutions on mere technicalities.
What may well happen is that the seller will be asked to produce a
test certificate if he hasn't gone down the Part P route.
No, they'll probably just be asked to regularise it and get a certificate,
which might require additional work if the work isn't up to scratch.
